It's possible!

Samuel L. Jackson was in New York City this week for a reading of a new play about Martin Luther King, Jr. called The Mountaintop by Katori Hall.

The play was first produced in London and is set to open on Broadway in the fall. The Mountaintop is set in King's Memphis motel room the day before he was assassinated and the imaginary exchange he has with a chambermaid.

Jackson could very well take on the role — they're offering him $50,000 a week!

We'd have a hard time turning that kind of cash down! Plus, Jackson was an usher at King's funeral in Atlanta so he does have quite the personal connection to the story.

Would U like to see Samuel L. on the Great White Way?
